How many times have you been pressed to get a gift at the last minute, and you settle on scratch tickets from the local lottery?
I'll bet it happens a lot, right?
And how often do those tickets win?
I'll bet almost never. If you're lucky, your giftee gets back half the face value of the tickets you've given.
Not so this guy in Michigan.
His kids gave him a Holiday Ice ticket as part of his Christmas gift.
Scratch it and BOOM!
Top prize of $300,000.
Not bad, huh?
He's keeping his anonymity, but he says he'll use the money to say thanks to his kids.
